Well I have been in a few different hospitals for suicidal thoughts and suicide attempts. And they help you by stabilizing you on meds.. I know you said aside from meds.. but meds is a big issue and they can make a big difference. But aside from that, they help you by keeping you safe. That may sound really simple, but you’re there because you are either a danger to yourself or to others. And when you’re in the hospital, atleast where I was. You are watched like a hawk. It may seem annoying but it’s really for your safety. And they help you by having you speak with a psychiatrist, with the nurses, orderlies and where I was, we would do art therapy, we would go outside ( enclosed yard ) and just lie on the grass. It was a good place to just get away from the real world and focus on what we were all struggling with
